DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS

Reference will now be made in detail to the present preferred embodiments of the invention, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings. Wherever possible, the same reference numbers are used in the drawings and the description to refer to the same or like parts.

FIG. 1 illustrates a touch pad module assembly structure according to one embodiment of this invention. FIG. 2 illustrates the touch pad module in FIG. 1. A touch pad module 120 is assembled within a concave area 103 of a housing 101 of a computer device 100 (such as a notebook computer). The touch pad module 120 provides a cursor control function, i.e. same function as a computer does. The embodiment herein discloses a screw-less assembly method, thereby reducing labor efforts and accelerating assembly speed. The touch pad module assembly structure and assembly method is described as below.

FIG. 3 illustrates a cross-sectional view taken along 3-3′ in FIG. 1. The cross-section line 3-3′ goes across the touch pad module 120 and two opposite housing edges (101 b, 101 c) of a generally rectangular concave area 103. In order to secure the touch pad module 120, a position pin 101 a is located on an inner surface of the housing edge 101 b for securing purpose.

The touch pad module 120 basically consists of three members: a support member 122, a circuit board 124 and a glass panel 126 (from bottom up). The circuit board 124 is attached over the support member 122, and the glass panel 126 is attached over the circuit board 124. The plastic support member 122 is to recover the circuit board 124 and glass panel 126 to an original position after they are pressed.

The support member 122 has an edge 122 d with a positioning member 122 a, on which a positioning hole 122 c is designed, to engage with an positioning pin 101 a of the housing 101. The support member 122 has an opposite edge 122 e with a hook member 122 b to couple with the housing edge 101 c.

FIG. 4 illustrates a cross-sectional view taken along 4-4′ in FIG. 1. The cross-section line 4-4′ goes across the touch pad module 120 and two opposite housing edges (101 b, 101 c) of a generally rectangular concave area 103. To enable the touch pad module 120 to be elastically recoverable, a bottom surface 103 a of the concave area 103 has a step 103 b and a convex member 103 c. The step 103 b is closer to the housing edge 101 b (than the housing edge 101 c) and the convex member 103 c is closer to the housing edge 101 c (than the housing edge 101 b).

The edge 122 d of the support member 122 is in contact with the step 103 b. The opposite edge 122 e has an opening 122 f to be inserted through by the switch 124 a of the circuit board 124 to contact the convex member 103 c of the concave area 103.

Referring both to FIG. 3 and FIG. 4, when the touch pad module 120 is assembled into the concave area 103 of the housing 101, a gap is formed between the support member 122 and the bottom surface 103 a of the concave area 103 such that the support member 122 is suspended over the bottom surface 103 a. The edge 122 d of the support member 122 is in contact with the step 103 b and has its positioning hole 122 c to engage with the positioning pin 101 a such that the edge 122 d can be firmly secured to the housing edge 101 b. The opposite edge 122 e of the support member 122 has its hook member 122 b to couple with the housing edge 101 c and the switch 124 a is in contact with the convex member 103 c. When a user pushes an edge of the touch pad module 120 with the switch 124 a, the support member 122 is bent to permit the switch 124 a to be pushed. When the touch pad module 120 is released from push, the support member 122 recover the touch pad module 120 to an original position.

FIG. 5A-5C illustrate a series of step of how the touch pad module being assembled using the cross-sectional view of FIG. 3. An advantage of the touch pad module 120 is to permit itself assembled into the concave area 103 of the housing 101 from an appearance side thereof. Referring to FIG. 5A, an edge of the touch pad module 120 (the edge 122 d of the support member 122) is inserted under the housing edge 101 b, and the positioning holes 122 c of the support member 122 engages with the positioning pin 101 a on an inner surface of the housing 101. An opposite edge of the touch pad module 120 (the edge 122 e of the support member 122) is swiveled down to couple with the housing edge 101 c. The opposite edge 122 e of the support member 122 has a hook member 122 b with a generally triangular cross-section. The hook member 122 b has three surfaces. A first surface 123 a is substantially in parallel with the glass panel 126. A second surface 123 c is substantially perpendicular to the first surface 123 a. A third surface 123 b interconnects the first surface 123 a and the second surface 123 c. Referring to FIG. 5B, when the hook member 122 b couples with the housing edge 101 c, the third surface 123 b contacts the housing edge 101 c such that the hook member 122 b is deformed and gradually engages with the housing edge 101 c. Referring to FIG. 5C, when the hook member 122 b fully engages with the housing edge 101 c, the first surface 123 a is in contact with an inner surface of the housing edge 101 c and an intersection of the second surface 123 c and third surface 123 b is in contact with the bottom surface 103 a of the concave area 103.

In the above-discussed embodiments, the housing 101, e.g. the housing edges (101 b, 101 c) and the bottom surface 103 a, of the computer device 100 is made from metallic materials so as to provide a stronger support for the touch pad module 120 (compared with plastic housing).

According to above-discussed embodiments, the touch pad module assembly structure permits the touch pad module to be assembled into the concave area of the housing from an appearance side thereof by a screw-less way, thereby reducing labor cost and speeding production output (compared with screw-fastening way).

It will be apparent to those skilled in the art that various modifications and variations can be made to the structure of the present invention without departing from the scope or spirit of the invention. In view of the foregoing, it is intended that the present invention cover modifications and variations of this invention provided they fall within the scope of the following claims and their equivalents.
